Early Years Education

Early Years Education Entitlement (EYEE)

Once a child reaches a certain pre-school age they become entitled to government money to attend several weekly Nursery Education classes. This is known as the Early Years Education Entitlement (EYEE). To find out more about this scheme contact The Childcare Information Helpline on 0800 2346 346. 

This education is referred to as the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and children complete their last year of this stage during their first year at Primary School (Reception Class).

The EYFS framework contains seven areas of learning, with two or three Early Learning Goals (ELGs) in each area. The areas of learning cover children's physical, intellectual, emotional and social development across a total of 17 ELGs. Children are considered to have reached a good level of development if they meet or exceed all the ELGs in the prime areas of learning and the four ELGs in literacy and mathematics.

The 7 areas of learning are:

Prime Areas

  • communication and language.
  • physical development.
  • personal, social and emotional development.

Specific Areas

  • literacy.
  • mathematics.
  • understanding the world.
  • expressive arts and design.

For each area the Early Learning Goals state what is expected that children will know, and be able to do by the end of the reception year in their education.

None of these areas of Learning and Development can be delivered in isolation from others. All the areas will be delivered through planned, purposeful play, with a balance of adult-led and child-initiated activities.
